I started practicing yoga in 2003 while attending university at UC San Diego. I dabbled in many different types of yoga but eventually found my silver slipper with SmartFlow yoga and Annie Carpenter. I am a 500-ERYT yoga instructor and a certified SmartFlow yoga instructor. I completed my initial 200 hr training with YogaWorks and Kia Miller in 2012 and my 300+ hr advanced training with Annie Carpenter in 2014. I am also an avid equestrian and run Equisol Retreats, a horseback riding and yoga retreat business here in Nosara, Costa Rica.
I love to explore how the physical and philosophical aspects of yoga can enhance riding and life in general and plan to share that love with you here.
I partnered with Callie Rae King and Horse Class in 2020 to offer a 30-day online Yoga for Riders course that has received amazing feedback. The course is geared for beginner and intermediate yogis who are looking to improve their balance, flexibility, strength and confidence on the yoga mat and into the saddle! www.yogaforriders.com
